Benito González has two dreams in
life: to marry the woman he loves and to build a giant skyscraper.
When he finds out that his girl has been sleeping with his best
friend, he dedicates his attention to the latter goal. Getting his
project off the ground isn't that easy, not even with the help of
his new girlfriend (who happens to be a banker). Benito is left
with one option: to marry for money. Easy access to cash gives
Benito the lifestyle he has always wanted but his "philosophy of
twos" (he has two balls, therefore he can have two girls, two cars
etc...) will soon lead him to his downfall.
